Mike Stephen puts out another call for cozy neighborhood bars to feature this winter as a semi truck rolls up to the studio, talks with Lake County volunteer Bill Hagan about finding one’s passion after 50, chats with Mike Gebert, editor and publisher of Fooditor, about the current state of the Chicago food scene, and visits Tanya Woods and John Preston at the Westside Justice Center about the current exhibit looking at 50 years of the Black Panther Party in IL. This week’s local music features pop-punkers Five Three Eyes.
